Doing a Dupli Metal Speck tele. Put about 1 and 1/4 cans of color on it. Looked pretty even until I misted on about a 1/2 can of nitro. Notice that it probably could have used another few light coats of color. Looks a little uneven when held up to the light. Yes, I put it on dry, in horizontal position. The sparkle looks ok, just color a little uneven. Should I go ahead an try to even it out with a little more color? I know the general rule of not putting acrylic over nitro but there is only 2-3 light misting coats of nitro on there. What should I do?
